Using Dataslot tab of Subprocess workstep properties

You can use the Dataslots tab to assign and manage dataslots, which control the information flow into and from the Subprocess workstep.
Note: The Dataslots tab is not available for inline subprocesses.
You can add, modify, or remove dataslots assigned to the Subprocess workstep in the Dataslots tab, an easy-to-use interface where you can add new or modify existing dataslots.
By default, the Fields view is displayed, with dataslots listed in a table. The Name column lists the name of the dataslot. The other two columns indicate whether the dataslot is input or output for the subprocess.
You can add, modify, or remove dataslots, the same way as you manage dataslots for an Adapter workstep (as described in Using the Dataslots tab of Adapter workstep properties).
To assign a dataslot as input to or output from the Fields view, click in the Input to Sub-Process or Output from Sub-Process column for the dataslot you want to modify, then select true or false in the drop-down list.
